Baaeed FAV in Lockinge Stakes Racing Odds

BAAEED is the current 4/9 odds-on favourite in Lockinge Stakes racing odds for Saturday* (odds recorded at 18:23 GMT on May 13th 2022 at 888sport).

He puts his unbeaten record on the line as he looks to make it seven straight victories on what will be his reappearance.

Baaeed was the joint-highest rated 1m horse in the world at the end of last year.

So his stock is pretty high and now as a 4-year-old will likely be even stronger which is a worry for the rest of those in this division.

Baaeed was last seen taking a cool victory in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot. He had to work to get the score by a neck.

This is somewhat calmer waters and it is likely to be a successful stepping stone on the road to Royal Ascot.

Mother Earth


Mother Earth a threat to Baaeed’s record?

The exciting MOTHER EARTH is a fascinating entry into this year’s renewal of the Lockinge.

She does have a slight advantage too in that she has made a winning reappearance for the season.

That came in a facile victory at the Park Express Stakes at the Curragh at this 1m trip 49 days ago.

Mother Earth has good proven consistency and is likely to be heavily involved for the places in this one.

She picked up the 1000 Guineas last year and looks to make further strides as a 4-year-old.

Mother Earth is a competitive and very likeable filly and brings her own merit as the 13/2 second-favourite* (odds recorded at 18:23 GMT on May 13th 2022 at 888sport).

Can the Real World have a say? -Lockinge Stakes Tips

REAL WORLD was brilliant last season and it is well worth looking at this high-class performer.

He does need a bounce back at the moment however as things haven’t gone his way this term.

Real World had opened the year with a fine score at Meydan in January.

But his last two have been well below his best efforts. However, the return to turf should be an asset for him.

Because of that and having some good previous form there is nothing wrong with sizing up his chances of place claims.

Real World is a quote of 8/1 in the Lockinge Stakes racing tips* (odds recorded at 18:23 GMT on May 13th 2022 at 888sport).

Alcohol Free should make her presence felt

ALCOHOL FREE gets rid of the hood that she wore for her seasonal reappearance at Sandown three weeks ago.

She wasn’t at her best in that one, taking a third-place finish.

But she’s no forlorn hope by any means and should be better for having got some air into her lungs.

Alcohol Free is a three-time Group 1 winner, the most recent of those coming last summer in the Sussex Stakes.

She is a class act and well worth her place in this field and can’t be dismissed lightly from 14/1* (odds recorded at 18:23 GMT on May 13th 2022 at 888sport).

Can Chindit get in among it?

CHINDIT is another interesting one at 20/1 in Lockinge Stakes odds* (odds recorded at 18:23 GMT on May 13th 2022 at 888sport).

He claimed a win on his reappearance, scoring very cosily at Doncaster 49 days ago.

The form from that is too bare to read much into in terms of win chances on Saturday.

But that was a good positive effort from Chindit in a Listed run.

He is a former course winner and there were nice pieces of form produced by him in the previous campaign.

The rest of the runners – Lockinge Stakes Tips

NEW MANDATE had a great time of things as a 2-year-old but then made no headway in just one appearance as a 3-year-old. He opened the new campaign with a win at Ascot 17 days ago.

SIR BUSKER has had more time on the track this season than any other of the others in this field. There was a runner up spot from him at Ascot 17 days ago behind New Mandate. He looks handy but hasn’t won since 2020.

ETONIAN had his first run in a year when taking a decent enough mid-field finish at course and distance in a handicap a month ago. This demands a whole lot more.

SUNRAY MAJOR was fifth on his reappearance run which was at Sandown three weeks ago. He needed that one but there’s little in his previous form to suggest that he has this in him.

Predictions & Tips for Lockinge Stakes Racing Odds

The brilliant BAAEED is back and it is hard to imagine that he is going to get rolled over as he goes for win number seven.

At the end of the previous campaign, he showed a great attitude to beat Palace Pier by a neck. Baaeed sets the standard at 4/9 odds-on* (odds recorded at 18:23 GMT on May 13th 2022 at 888sport)

Clearly, there is little value in the favourite and the biggest challenge looks to be MOTHER EARTH who is such a good filly.

Whether she can do enough from 13/2 for win purposes is a different matter however* (odds recorded at 18:23 GMT on May 13th 2022 at 888sport).

The final selection in the Lockinge Stakes tips is ALCOHOL FREE who is proven at this level.

Her reappearance was encouraging enough and she poses a threat from 14/1* (odds recorded at 18:23 GMT on May 13th 2022 at 888sport).
